I am preparing a document which explains the workflow, and should
clear the confusion (hopefully). For a quick answer to your question -
everything in XO Core and XO Bundled (except for a few modules like
Watch and Listen, Connect, etc) will be following the release schedule
For a list of modules which are supposed to follow the schedule, check
I hope to see more modules following the Glucose schedule in the next
release cycles.

For the rest, expect to see them follow the OLPC release cycle,
